The Value Of Popular In Bound Links To Your Website

February 19th, 2010 by Jennifer Dunphy

Popular Links have a big impact in the visibility of your website in the search engines. Your website’s relevance is also determined by the quality and quantity of other websites that link to it, which makes link building another important element of your search engine optimization strategy. Although it can be time-consuming, getting relevant links, especially quality links from a major news site or blog (also known as Authority Sites) enhances website optimization by showing that others trust your site. Think of it as a popularity contest. The more quality sites that link to your site, the cooler you & your site become. Links to your website are essentially votes for your website. Every link equals another vote for your website & the content that you display. Be patient – it can take a while to build the amount of quality links needed to impact search engine optimization. In addition to the search engines seeing your site as valuable through these links, you will also get additional traffic from people clicking from those sites to yours, an additional benefit from implementing a good search engine optimization strategy. Where do these links come from? Stay tuned to find out more about where quality links come from.
